1. THIS QUOTE FROM THE HISTORIA AUGUSTA ON THE WIDE SELECTION OF ANIMALS PRESENT AT THE GAMES

(Thanks to Victor for the suggestion!)

Quaesturam magnificentissimam gessit. aedilitatis suae tempore duodecim populo Romano munera, id est per singulos menses singula de suo exhibuit, ita ut gladiatorum nonnumquam quingena paria exhiberet, numquam minus centenis quinquagenis. feras Libycas una die centum exhibuit, ursos una die mille. extat silva eius memorabilis, quae picta est in domo rostrata Cn. Pompei, quae ipsius et patris eius et proavi fuit, quam Philippi temporibus vester fiscus invasit. In qua pictura etiam nunc continentur cervi palmati ducentis mixtis Brittannis, equi feri triginta, oves ferae centum, alces decem, tauri Cypriaci centum, strutiones Mauri miniati trecenti, onagri triginta, apri centum quinquaginta, ibices ducenti, dammae ducenti.
